Lowest fuel consumption wins. Where fuel consumption is equal, best time wins.
Run the track in "Practice" mode. Run one lap and record gallons used and lap time after your first lap.
Permitted car setup:
Driving aids on, or off - your choice.
Circuit: Citta di Aria (normal)
(We can do other courses too.)
2.11 miles. This course is just long enough to do in stealth mode - if you're careful. Hills provide some regen opportunities.
The PS2 will accelerate the car towards the start of the practice lap before it hands you the reins, using about 0.002 gallons in the process. I think it's possible to do the whole thing without firing the ICE, and keep it pegged at 0.002.
Note: we're deducting fuel used before crossing the start line to begin the lap from total used at the finish of the lap.

Gentlemen! Start your... er... DON'T start your engines!
this time i didnt feel like going 2mph so i only slowed to 7 but i still had to use enough gas to maintain that speed. the key to the whole track is that 180 turn when you first start going up hill. if you can take it over 25mph and hold at least 5mph until the finish line, then you are in good shape. i am convinced that a sub 4 minute time is possible using no gas.
also i do not like how the computer wastes some gas for you before you start and my best laps are usually done the 2nd time around for some reason....
don't waste your time or time will waste you
